The tree limbs were knocked onto the tracks just south of Avenue M in Brooklyn around 4:15 p.m., causing delays and service changes on the B, Q, D and N lines, according to the MTA. Crews worked for close to an hour to cut up and remove the debris from the tracks. Regular service was restored around 5:25 p.m., but the authority warned of residual delays. The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for the five boroughs on Monday, warning of sustained winds between 15 and 25 mph and gusts up to 50 mph. Tuesday is also expected to be windy, with gusts up to 25 mph, according to the weather service.
